More of a rant, than anything else. As per topic, I’ve been trying to run this game, and some others, with various degrees of success. But XCom 2 is not running at all.
Right now it complains about some libraries (which are in game’s folder under lib) not being found.
If I add that folder to LD_LIBRARY_PATH, it complains about some other libraries not having expected version info.
I’ve tried prefer host libraries override, running Steam under X11 and Wayland.
I’d love to use Linux as much as possible, but for 10 or so years I’ve been dabbling in it, it’s always an uphill battle, one thing being fixed two others borked.
Thanks for reading my rant. If by some miracle you know why XCom 2 is not running, or even how to fix it, please help me out.
I agree it is a problem especially if you are a gamer. On the bright side the situation is much better than 10 years ago. Wifi drivers as the most vivid example come to mind (ndiswrapper and using windows drivers was fun). Another benefit of this is whenever you run into problems you can learn a lot from it
